These are the packages that should be MANUALLY removed:

user # equo remove Perl-OSType-1.2

The command is equo remove name of the package, I suggest to put at the message an example with the first orphaned package - In this case my last one when I thougt in sending this post. Even better if there are a question prompting to remove them with a Yes/No.
